Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I think my car is the younger sibling of yours, #69 off the production line, US model., roll up windows, vinyl interior, manual locks.
It seems to be pretty much original, purchased earlier in the year from the original owner. I can't wait to get it running right and take the hard top off.
I did error in setting my timing. It's been reset to 5 btdc and idles much better cold, but I still have a rough idle and hard restart after warm up. Fuel pressure ok and seems to hold acceptably, trigger points clean, plugs, cap and wires ok.
New cold start injector. Now suspecting MPC unit.
Any similular experiences with your car or thoughts about my woes appreciated.
